York Potash proposals

I hope that I do not upset Hawsker folk when I say that I never imagined that I would spend a half hour in their village hall and find it utterly fascinating but I did, and it was.

The occasion was an exhibition by York Potash of their splendid proposals, their attending staff were most knowledgeable, thoughtful and friendly.

I most fervently hope that their plans receive consent, up to 700 job opportunities, must not be missed.

My only reservation is that they wish to transport the product by pipeline rather than rail.

I hope they will consider this.

That said, I wish them every success and trust that Whitby town and villages will provide full support, which I trust they will also get from the local planning authority.
